Cancel- lations and programme changes due to Corona

Cancellation of performances

Based on the state regulation dated April 21, 2020, ordering the ban of large-scale events due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, we have to inform you with a heavy heart that all performances of Staatsoper Unter den Linden until the end of July have to be cancelled. Guided tours, accompanying program and performances in other venues are affected as well. Even though season 2019/20 could not end as planned and we will only be able to welcome you again in the coming season, we would like to stay in contact with you through our digital channels and offers. We will use this opportunity to thank you for your loyalty and your solidarity.

Tickets that have already been purchased for the cancelled performances lose their validity. They can be refunded, you can receive a voucher to the value of your purchased tickets or you can choose to donate the amount of your purchase to the youth program of Staatsoper Unter den Linden. If you have purchased tickets for a performance with free seat selection directly at our box office, we will require a photo/ a scan of your tickets with a legible barcode.

Holders of tickets that have been bought at external ticket agencies or with travel agencies have to directly contact the according agency for a refund.

Advance ticket sales

Due to the current situation, our box office in the opera foyer has to stay closed until further notice. The ticket service is not reachable by phone as well. We are still available by email and you can send your inquiries to

We will keep you informed about alternatives such as our digital programme with daily, free video-on-demand offers here.

The start of advance booking that we had planned for the new season 2020/21 has to be postponed to a later date, because of the current situation. We will inform you about it as soon as possible. When we have new information, you can also find them here on our website.

Programme changes

Due to the developments caused by the corona pandemic, adjustments have to be made to the 2019/20 and 2020/21 season schedule of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden.

Unfortunately, the new production »Chowanschtschina« cannot be performed in June 2020 as planned. This also means that the revival in the 2020/21 season is not possible.
Also affected by the changes are the productions »Idomeneo« and »Così fan tutte«, which were announced as revivals in the coming season.

We will inform you about the specific changes and replacements in good time before the start of the advanced sales for subscriptions and FESTTAGE cycles by newsletter and here on the website.
